We stayed here on our first night in Panama and after 15 days of travelling around Panama we returned to relax (with friends)and finish our trip here with four more nights before heading home!
Ivan the owner is a very kind hearted and caring person that he wants nothing more than for you to enjoy your stay, ensure you get the most of your stay and help you, chat and become friends. Daily forecasts on surf points and tides, whilst serving up amazing breakfast and relaxing in a cosy little corner of El palmer!
There are 5 rooms- beautifully decorated and put together with amazing photography shots displayed in each taken by Ivan himself. Comfy beds, swan shaped towels and big hot water showers are a very welcoming sight when you have been travelling around Panama and you get a glimpse into some of the places you could be having to stay!!
All the staff (3 and Ivan) are friendly and caring and are always around for a chat and will recommend things to you to ensure you have the best trip- whilst phoning around and helping with any enquiries/planning and language translation for you!!
Not only this whilst we stayed here we found a puppy who we named Rio- our friends had planned to try and adopt her and take her home to the states. I won't write the sad story of Rio but would only say Ivan helped us and supported us with vets, airlines and care of the beautiful little puppy which will never be forgotten!
All in all thank you Manglar Lodge and Ivan we will send many to visit and return too!!
